Derrick Brown FAME Prairies Sets Records

This weekend the FAME Crew attended the FAME Prairies event hosted by Derrick Brown in Calgary, Alberta. Not only was the theatre sold out we maxed out capacity with standing room. Attendees piled into the theatre taking up all the seats, aisles, standing at the back of the theatre and in the doorways. With a record breaking 218 athletes competing in one day, it was the first regional event to set such an amazing record.

For full results of the Derrick Brown FAME Prairies event stay tuned! Congratulations to all athletes that competed this weekend. It was a action packed event!

Next up for Calgary is the FAME Canadian National Championships at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre on October 18th! Be sure to register because this event will contain Level 2, 3 and Pro Level shows. If FAME Prairies had 218 athletes, you can bet that that the Calgary residents will be flocking to the FAME Canadian Nationals. Tickets will be available online very shortly.

FAME East Results Are In!

Yet another successful event in Montreal, QC.  This show was amazing – not only did we get 95 athletes the entire theatre (both lower and balcony) was packed with people waiting to watch the fantastic physiques on stage.  Stephane Laporte emceed the event with his comedic talent and FAME Pro Larry Vinette guest posed and incorporated the audience by running through the theatre posing on the seats.  New FAME Pros were added to the roster and more people advanced onto Level 3 status which qualifies them for the FAME World Championships in June.

Two Changes

Two important changes that you should be aware about are:

Due to a crazy and unfortunate plane debacle with both Lyzabeth Lopez and Mindy Blackstien the camp that Lyzabeth was supposed to host last Sunday April 13th was re-schedule to this Sunday April 20th at Venice Fitness from 2pm to 6pm.  So if you were planning on attending the last one but didn’t get a chance, this is a great option!  To register, click here.

Also due to an amazing number of athletes signing up for FAME Prairies (we hit over 150 last week) we have to start the pre-judge earlier.  The pre-judge will now begin at 8am instead of 9am.  So tell your friends, family an fans about the change.  To purchase tickets or to register, click here!
